Keri Hilson displayed a fake baby bump prosthetic on social media, which sparked a wild debate among her followers.

The semi-retired singer/songwriter uploaded photos that show her cradling a baby bump, resembling a 5-6 month pregnancy.

She didn't caption the images, which left her followers with many unanswered questions. She also shared a video, which she captioned with laughing emojis.

According to Page Six, Hilson is not pregnant.

Hilson, 38, captioned the clip with a whimsical [emojis] which could mean literally anything — but a peruse of her Instagram history seems to disprove the notion that Hilson is pregnant, given that two weeks ago she was posting swimsuit pics displaying a rather flat stomach.

Page Six theorized that Hilson is playing a prank on her followers.

Could Hilson be donning a prosthetic baby bump for a TV or film role? Per IMDB, her most recent credit is in a film called “Don't Waste Your Pretty," based on a novel of the same name, which is slated for a 2021 release, though according to one site, production on the film wrapped in August.
